Maya HTT and Siemens PLM sponsor premier showing of “First Man” movie in Montreal

250 aerospace supply company representatives enjoy hospitality, educational presentation and exclusive movie showing at Colossus de Laval in the Cosmodome

On Friday, October 12, approximately 250 suppliers to the bustling Montreal aerospace community gathered at the Colossus de Laval theater and entertainment complex for a premier showing of “First Man,” the new movie which traces the history of the first moon landing in 1969.  The film focuses on the life of Neil Armstrong, the American astronaut who took that “one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”

This event was sponsored jointly by Maya HTT and Siemens PLM, partners in service to the aerospace industry in Montreal.  Hosting the event was Ms. Rita Azrak, marketing director for Maya, who began the technical presentation portion of the day by musing that the actual “first foot” on the moon was Canadian, as the landing leg cones on the lunar excursion module Eagle were fabricated in Canada, a comment which aroused the crowd’s enthusiasm.

The three main speakers gave insights on their companies’ involvement in the industry and were quite optimistic for the future, as funding for renewed space exploration by both Canada and America is in the works with the respective countries’ governments.  Before the first speaker, a recorded message was shown from the first Canadian astronaut, Marc Garneau, now Minister of Transport in Canada and a veteran of three flights on the Space Shuttle.  He was followed by Mike Greenley, group president for MDA Corporation, a major aerospace supplier, George Rendell, senior director at Siemens and Marc Lafontaine, vice-president of Maya.  All spoke of the longtime benefits derived in our daily lives from the space program, over the decades, as well as the next major project now under way, the Lunar Orbital Platform-Gateway, a lunar orbit space station which, according to NASA documents, will serve as a solar-powered communications hub, science lab, short-term habitation module and holding area for space rovers and other robots.  They detailed some of the advancements and planned developments in artificial intelligence.

The program also included a variety of successes achieved with Siemens PLM products, especially NX CAD and NX CAM through the Teamcenter of product lifecycle management.  Maya is the Siemens partner in Montreal and brings further value to these products and others in the Siemens suite as a Platinum Level VAR, serving a broad spectrum of industries, including aerospace, defense, automotive, marine and commercial building.

Many in the audience were quite moved by the touching story of Neil Armstrong and his Apollo journey to the moon and back.
